Hackers got me last year. Now, they track me & block me every time I change my info or ISP. How do I stop them?

Postáilte

AOL will not let me cancel my old account. They removed all my security after insisting I stay and warning me that if I cancelled, my Life Lock would be invalid and that I would immediately be fair game for everyone. I got new account at yahoo and new McAfee security. When I needed McAfee's help, one agent said they could stop the problems and hacking if I talked to another agent and paid $178.00 each year. I refused. I stupidly wrote about it on yahoo and now they are blocking my access to this account so I cannot use this email either and my McAfee programs insist that I am not on line, so they cant help me or update my subscription. Now what do I do? Please help me. I just refreshed mozilla firefox as the new 37 something version was not working very well and kept crashing.

Hi Patak,

I would recommend you upgrade to Windows 7/8. You can either purchase a license and install it on you current computer, or you can just purchase a new PC. If you do decide to upgrade your current computer I would recommend you do a clean install rather than an upgrade.

Make sure to backup any files you want to keep, as this will wipe your entire computer.

Windows 7 Windows 8

Once you get that done, I would recommend you install a security suite: http://www.bitdefender.com/ https://ca.norton.com/norton-security-antivirus http://www.kaspersky.com/

Then I would either create a new email account or change your password to one you have never used before.


Alternatively, if you are not willing or able to upgrade you can try and clean out your current PC, however no malware scanner is 100% effective. Given the extent of your issues, I would really consider a fresh install.

You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one. Windows 8 has antivirus built-in already.

Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Hi. I was unable to even open my email until a few mins. ago. I had to open history and manually delete everything from day one. When I checked my recent activity on email, it showed someone from Chicago, Ill. was using it. I live in Missouri. The pointer icon would flicker and I was unable to use anything. It was even spreading out to anything on the web so Im happy to know how to kill it again next time...esp. since it showed that photos were being continuously uploaded! I will certainly try some of your suggestions now that I can read them. Thank you so very much for your kindness and your help. God bless you. I will let you know if the problem comes back or if your suggestions prevent the return of them. Thanks, everyone, just for caring!

I recommend you find another e-mail provider.Once it is set up, you inform who you want of the new box. Then contact the other providers and tell them to cancel the account.

now they are blocking my access to this account so I cannot use this email

You demand from them a reason for this action.

Change the password.
